Biography: Michael a semi-well-adjusted teen living in a city where well-adjusted teens are hard to come by. Michael's parents are both mid-forties and employed as elementary school teachers. As such Michael is expected to work hard and make something of himself.
As a young boy Michael was always encouraged to try new activities from Little League baseball to dancing, until he found a few things that he really loved. To this day Michael still enjoys trying new things and having new experiences; as such it is very easy to get him to say yes to things.
Michael was brought up with a love of books and is usually reading through something. His favorite authors are JK Rowling, Stephen King, John Grisham, and Anne Rice, and he can usually be seen reading or rereading one of their books.
At an early age Michael developed a love of music and singing, which his parents nurtured by entering him in a local children's choir. He continued to sing with the choir until he was too old and his voice started to change. He has since joined a school choir.
Michael started elementary school at the school where his parents both taught, which made it a very interesting and unspeakably awkward experience for him. He learned quickly not to get into trouble, having had his parents as teachers and privy to what seemed like every detail of his life. Middle school came as a welcome escape for him.
In middle school Michael started to play football and started to become interested in girls. He continued to play baseball and look forward to playing on a high school team in both sports.
While he is by no means good, Michael developed an interest in music during tenth grade after playing a music-rhythm game and enjoying it quite a lot. A friend started teaching him guitar over the summer, and he's managed to learn a couple of tunes. He still has to think hard about what he's doing and can't sing and play at the same time yet, but he's still proud of the progress he's made, even if he still screws up his favorite songs.
Currently Michael is in eleventh grade at Detroit Central and playing football and baseball for his school. He gets good marks in his classes, particularly in English and Science. Michael has always had an interest in reading, and over time became fascinated with how life operates. He finds himself amazed by the complexity of the body's internal processes, and wants to understand how it all works. When he graduates from school he plans on attending Michigan State University and majoring in Biochemistry.
